No lol it's not a tough question. It's a stupid question.

If you had to rape a sheep or rape a donkey, which would you rape?

creation. that's how it started. there you were. in charge of everything except the questions that are posed to you and the options you get to choose from. and now you have to choose. force everyone to share, or force them not to share.

Let me ask you this.

If you had the option of being part of a country where there is a dictatorship that forces people to do whatever, or a non-authoritarian government that by and large just stayed out of people's way, which would you choose?

Like it's the damndest thing. all the antiauthoritarians demanding absolute authority for a government to impose their will.

in reality there's no absolute way for them to impose their will. some people get away with shit no matter what the laws are. i'm betting that i'll get away with some shit that's all.

It's almost like you are not and never were really antiauthoritarian, but anti not you being the authoritarian tyrant.

Maybe it's like a hang up where you felt powerless at some point, and just fever dream about absolute power, and get that kick from feeling like you are part of some global totalitarian project.

Obviously, all this post is is you declaring the amount of power you would like to get over people.

By comparison lol, that Military Police guy was a fucking libertarian madman. All he wanted to do was handcuff me. And he just wanted to do it because it was a job.

Like honestly, a fucking anarchist that guy.

just a question. let's remove the authority element. is it better that people share and look out for each other? or should they not share and not look out for each other?

You can either want everybody to act a certain way or do a certain thing, even against their will, or you can be an antiauthoritarian. Not both.

Because if it's option A, unless you are retarded and we have a whole different problem, you will require the authority to implement it.
